An Act of Dog - Museum of Compassion

An Act of Dog - Museum of Compassion One Man Paints 5500 Shelter Dogs, using art for social change. "Artists have a powerful medium for reporting on the consciousness of our current civilization and can paint visual records of the unpalatable realities of our time.

The aim is to move the viewer to feel those realities and engage them in a dialogue for change." ~ AAOD

Mission

We are paving two parallel pathways: cultivating compassion for animals and raising funds through the sale of our fine art products to give back to rescue groups across the nation, and working with schools to show kids how to use their art for social change. Creativity is as important as literacy, yet we are educating our youth out of their creative capacities. Picasso said- "All children are born artists." He understood that creativity cultivates original ideas that have value. The creative process connects us to what matters and what lights us up, and it helps us enjoy our lives, instead of enduring our lives. We envision the 5500 portraits of shelter dogs in a working/interactive museum, where kids will come to create for an animal cause or other social injustices they are passionate about, turn their art into a product and build social campaigns to raise money and awareness for change. Kids are the unwrapped gifts of our future, and we believe that it is critically important to put meaningful art back into schools to allow them the process of self-discovery and to ignite a desire to become informed about the atrocities in society and to use their creativity to bring them into the light.

5500 Shelter Dog Portraits

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 star review from LINDA Y.:

"Floyd - The portrait of Floyd looks and feels so real, that I just want to pick him up and comfort this sweet, scared little soul. I really feel as if I know this little dog by the look in his eyes, his expressive face,and his body posture, curled up in a little ball. Floyd has a sweet and sensitive and soft personality. He didn't deserve to die alone in a shelter. He has a home with me now. I only wish I could have saved him from the shelter. Mark is amazing with his art and I feel good knowing that I help save other Floyds by purchasing this portrait. Adopt. Don't shop."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 star review from Lori M.:

"Love Mark's work - I love each portrait that was purchased. Mark was able to show us the soul of each one of the dogs he painted. I'm grateful that my purchase supports such a needed charity. A voice that opens our eyes to the disturbing number of companion animals that enter shelters and never leave. Together, we can advocate for change."

Pit Bull Dogs make the greatest companions and are a wonderful family dog. Sadly, they are being killed by the millions in shelters and discriminated against, around the world, under the heinous, breed-specific legislation (BSL) law that bans or restricts certain types of dogs based on their appearance.

One of the 5500 found his home! Here is Sharpie ❤️ #neverforgotten
I just received my painting of “Swami”. He’s a beautiful portrait. His image is moving and brings tears to my eyes. He will have a forever home with our family and he will never be forgotten. Thanks so much to Mark for his amazing work in bringing light upon the euthanasia situation so many animals face upon entering the shelter systems. We need more people on the planet like you Mark! 🙏🏼💗
Have you seen your wonderful Success Talk show interview my friends Mark Barone & Marina Barone ?? It was such a pleasure and an honor to do this show with you! WOW, I am your fan and friend for life now and I anxiously await my very own furbaby oil painting and I will do a PR video with it too when it arrives to show everyone that they could have one too while they last in stock. Thank you Brenda Cooper for introducing me to Mark and Marina and all they do to save lives. Please Watch - Like - Comment and Share it from Youtube directly when you click on this video here..
In his studio, artist Mark Barone sets out to paint 5,500 portraits of the dogs he has discovered are euthanized every day in America. He painted 1400 days straight and during his journey he inspires students to use their creativity to save shelter animals! 30 MIN. PBS DOCUMENTARY: https://www.pbs.org/video/an-act-of-dog-o1fr7v/
Mark Barone, A kind family member would like to make a donation by personal check to An Act of Dog. What is the mailing address? Thank you Mark
Art should stir the heart, pinch the conscience and make humanity realize that all life is family...some woof, some speak in different languages, some talk in birdsong, some bleat, some nicker, but all life is important and sacred and must be allowed to live out their natural lives surrounded by respect, kindness, compassion......one earth, one family!
From Costa Rica...Happy Holidays to both of you; thank you for all you do/give on behalf of the animals♥
Hi! What is the timeframe for a custom dog portrait? THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!
